30 New Episodes of Beavis and Butt-Head Coming to MTV

Beavis and Butt-Head are coming back.  According to REVIEWniverse, Mike Judge, the creator of Beavis and Butt-Head is looking to have his dynamic duo make a comeback and is currently outlining 30 brand new episodes of the series.

The show, as if you don't remember, follows two stupid, obnoxious and rude high school kids living together in the fictional town of Highland. The two get themselves into plenty of trouble and strange social situations at school, out-of-school, working their dead-end job at Burger World and just messing around in their neighborhood. In addition to their antics outside of their house, Beavis and Butt-Head would also partake in some Mystery Science Theater 3000-style criticism of various rock/heavy metal music videos from the likes of Black Sabbath, Metallica, and many more.

Mike Judge is currently developing the new episodes with the intention that they return to MTV where it all started. However, it’s important to note that there is currently no official deal in place with MTV, so the episodes may end up finding a new home. And the good news is, fans of the original series won’t have to worry about any unfamiliar updates to the animation style or show formula as Judge is not only sticking to the show’s traditional “ghetto-tech aesthetic,” but it will also feature Beavis and Butt-Head mocking contemporary music video clips between the various sketches.
